The article deals with the ways of forming junior pupils’ informational culture, problems of children’s training and education in the information society, preservation of moral values and humanistic component of informational technology implementation in the school and family cooperation. It also focuses on the problem of providing junior pupils’ information security. Psychological phenomena associated with the obtaining of new information technologies have been presented. It has been defined that junior pupils’ informational culture is a system of knowledge and skills used for searching required information from the diversity of informational resources; the selection, evaluation, saving of the found information and critical thinking based on the moral and cultural values; the integration, structuring and creation of new information. Formation of junior pupils’ informational culture occurs at “Steps to computer science” lessons. These lessons make them acquire computer skills through games playing. The drafted computer program “Steps to computer science Plus” (http://dvsvit.com.ua/cxodunku/) contains a number of mathematical problems, as well as science and native language assignments, which are focused on the development of logical thinking, some computer exercises are designed to adapt the child’s hand to operate the mouse. Modern technologies are very important for the organization of school educational process. The experience of Internet resource aiming to support distance learning for students of physical and mathematical school № 17 in Vinnytsya (disted.edu.vn.ua) has been described. The site is an integral part of the informational and educational environment (IEE), which is planned to “involve” the whole educational process in the gymnasium and later – all schools in the region, and further – Ukraine. Empirical research confirms the fact that children of primary school are active Internet and social networks users (33.3 % of them have already registered) and master new forms of virtual communication, therefore expose themselves to dangers of the information environment. The diagnosis found out that 85.2 % of respondents use computer as a toy, 70.4 % – to watch video (cartoons), 48.2 % for teaching and learning purposes, 26 % – for other purposes (as parents indicated: fun searching, watching the weather, social networking, homeworking). Thus, teachers and parents should join their efforts to develop a system of means and tools for children acquiring knowledge, developing abilities and skills that make up the security of their life in the information society.
